Postdocs@UCSD Survey


UCSD Geisel libraryThe Postdocs@UCSD Survey was initiated by the Office of Postdoctoral Scholar Affairs and developed by the Office of Operational Strategic Initiatives to collect data that would help us understand how postdocs feel about their training and work environment, as well as other issues that impact the climate at UC San Diego. It measures department and mentor effectiveness from the postdocs’ perspective and provides valuable data that will help us identify issues that needs addressing. 

The survey has been statistically validated to measure 6 key dimensions concerning: Satisfaction with the University, Department Mission and Goals, Department Effectiveness, PI/Mentor Effectiveness, Postdoc Effectiveness & Satisfaction, Campus Climate.
